I can think of two shows in which people who were not members of the band (and who were not named Janis) raved audibly into stage microphones during Lovelight. Can you tell us the dates and (unless lost to history) whose voice we are hearing?

EDIT: ...and feel free to recount anything you remember about the content of their ravings.

RULES: From memory - no databases or Google. Answers are correct if they fit the above description, even if they're not either of the shows I'm thinking of. Maybe there are dozens of these and I just haven't been getting around.

Well, does the Woodstock one count with the guy that babbles on about "the third coast" and such? All I know is that some folks thought it was Ken Babbs (sp?) but others said he talked first, during quipment trouble, and it's a whacko under the stage?

Dunno. Or do you mean really "talking/conversing" with the audience?

That's one of them--I'm not talking Chicago blues, either (to quote Babbs or whoever). Congrats, Tell!

Now anyone know the more obscure one?

EDIT: Like Tell's Woodstock example, it's not just an isolated comment, but an extended rant, maybe by more than one person.

I think that's the only one that comes to mind for LL; there was the extended ramble by a gal in the 6-7-70 OOne, or CE, in which the band appears to quiet down--drum solo time--in order for her to speak her piece, as it's an anti war bit, I think? This is all speculation based on comments by reviewers here, and LiA/CLIFF I think, from some time ago...

The funny thing is, whatever she's saying, which goes on for minutes, is barely audible, so I've never determined WHAT she's getting at, and I listened to it all the time...damn, at least I think it's the 6-7 show!?

Sorry, hijack there--same theme, wrong song.

Not one of the ones I was thinking of. Is that a guess or was someone raving?

Raving? No. But Pigpen leaned over into the crowd and started talking to a 'Sam and Barbara' as I recollect. They spoke into the microphone at one point. But this may not be an example of what you're looking for....

EDIT Jeez where did this double post come from....?

EDIT: Sorry. I've got the Pats and Jets on the boob and may be trying to do just a bit much at this point.
